Homebuyers at Black Canyon Estates, an enclave of semi-custom estate homes by KirE Builders Inc., have already discovered the best of Ramona’s outdoor activities, starting with the winding greenbelts and trails that cut through and around the community.
Ramona, a rural community in San Diego County, is a picturesque place to visit or call home because of its small town charm and big outdoor fun.
Located adjacent to Cleveland National Forest, Black Canyon Estates offers an instant natural escape. Homeowners can enjoy meandering hiking and biking trails available in the area, creating a wondrous setting to discover.
“We love to explore the various trails, lakes and natural preserves that are out here,” said Mike Gesualdo, a Black Canyon Estates homeowner. “We’ve found some spots close to our property that aren’t as well-known that have waterfalls and nice trees with shade. It’s a blast to explore.”
For folks who enjoy spending time outdoors but want a taste of Ramona’s Main Street charm, the upcoming 44th Annual Ramona Country Fair, taking place Thursday, July 31, to Sunday, Aug. 3, features a livestock auction, a variety of vendors, live entertainment and “good-old-country-fun” contests.
Ramona is also home to a budding wine industry, with several wineries for residents and visitors to sniff, sip and savor the local wines on-site. Most wineries offer tours of the vineyards and include educational experiences to learn about the wine-making process. With wineries scattered throughout the countryside, the scenic drive is a wonderful way to get to know another side of Ramona.
“Black Canyon Estates homeowners have a wealth of great outdoor adventures right out their front doors,” said Josh Santa, president of KirE Builders. “The pace of living is different up here. There seems to be more time to stay active while spending time with friends and family in your neighborhood. In addition to great natural escapes, we are minutes away from family-friendly destinations such as the San Diego Safari Park, San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park and a couple of world-class golf courses.”
Although the pace of spending time enjoying the natural beauty of Ramona is leisurely, the time to get into one of the limited edition estate homes at Black Canyon Estates is now. With current inventory moving rapidly and several reservations held on phases 3 and 4, prospective buyers should seize the opportunity before it disappears.
Those who act quickly can reserve their preferred, oversize lot and even select the floor plan perfectly suited for their lifestyle. In addition, homebuyers can have total control over their home with available interior modifications, upgrades and floor plan adjustments, depending on construction scheduling and floor plans. A sales agent can provide more details.
With six exquisitely appointed floor plan options ranging from three to five bedrooms and 2,200 to 2,710 square feet, Black Canyon Estates offers semi-custom estate home living at a more affordable price than the surrounding communities of Poway and Scripps Ranch. Each home also comes standard with a 3.0kW solar system and integrated in-home pest defense system.
Located at 23041 Stokes Road in Ramona, homes at Black Canyon Estates start from the $500,000s. Visit www.BCEramona.com or call 877-612-7465 for more information.
